Grass Fed Beef Intestines

Grass Fed Beef Intestines

The intestines and stomach (tripe) are organs that digest and absorb the nutrients needed for optimal health. Intestines are a profound source of gut-specific building blocks like collagen, glutamine and some organ-derived probiotics which are key for stabilizing, repairing and building a healthy gut.

Nourish Your Way To Health & Happiness With Grass Fed Beef Intestines

Nourishment

For most of human history, we effortlessly consumed (like-supports-like nutrition) the things we needed for strength, health and happiness. Like the fertile ground that we once walked upon, we were a natural extension of this earth. In the modern world, we unknowingly struggle to fulfill our nutritional needs in order to support and sustain a vibrant, disease-free life. We are now part of a world where our health is not wholly ours... many leading experts believe that pervasive gut issues (dysbiosis, sibo, leaky gut) have a lot to do with the problem. The solution is to restore and rebuild our gut health with proven anthropological ways that are backed by modern science... this includes the use of intestine and tripe.

We Evolved Eating Intestines & Tripe

According to the great John (Fire) Lame Deer, the eating of guts evolved into a contest. “In the old days we used to eat the guts of the buffalo, making a contest of it, two fellows getting hold of a long piece of intestines from opposite ends, starting chewing toward the middle, seeing who can get there first; that’s eating. Those buffalo guts, full of half-fermented, half-digested grass and herbs, you didn’t need any pills and vitamins when you swallowed those.”

Beverly Hungry Wolf describes the preparation and consumption of a cow in The Ways of My Grandmothers, noting that her grandmother prepared the cow “as she had learned to prepare buffalo when she was young.” The lungs were not cooked, just sliced and hung up to dry. Intestines were also dried. Sapotsis or Crow gut is a Blackfoot delicacy made from the main intestine which is stuffed with meat and roasted over coals. Tripe was prepared and eaten raw, roasted or boiled.

Intestines

Intestines are a profound source of intestine-specific building blocks, collagen/gelatin, glutamine and some organ-derived probiotics which are key for stabilizing, repairing and rebuilding a leaky gut. If you're like my tribe and you're into making homemade, simmered-with-love-for-3-days bone soup, try adding some pieces of intestines and tripe. You and your gut will be glad you did. Recent research shows that extracts of intestines provide growth stimulators that are needed to repair the lining of the intestinal wall.

Tripe

Tripe is the common term used to refer to the stomach of ruminating (grazing) animals including cows, buffalo and sheep. The Sioux of the Great Plains were known to boil buffalo meat and wild herbs with heated rocks in a buffalo paunch... afterward, they ate the paunch too. Tripe was so revered in European culture that it spurred a tiff between William the Conqueror and Phillip I, the King of France. This is also a great source of gut-specific building blocks, micronutrients, collagen/gelatin, digestive enzymes and some organ-derived probiotics. Many have reported that eating tripe has greatly improved their digestive system.

NOTE: Cows have these huge stomachs which are populated with billions upon billions of bacteria, which begin breaking down the cellulose in the cell walls of plant fibers. The first three stomachs, the rumen, reticulum, and omasum, are concerned with breaking down the plant fibers in preparation for digestion. The work is mainly done by bacteria. True digestion finally occurs in the fourth stomach, the abomasum. Glands produce hydrochloric acid, pepsin and lipase which finish breaking down the food into all its constituent nutrients.

Whole food, nutrient-dense organs and glands can provide great benefit for those seeking targeted support in harmony with nature — the old-fashioned way, the way that our early ancestors did. Grass Fed Beef Intestines (w/ Tripe) is a whole food and dietary supplement that provides pure bovine intestine (w/ bovine tripe) that's teeming with gut-specific building blocks, gelatin, glutamine and of course, organ-derived probiotics to nourish and support our own gut and digestive health.

Our product is 100% sourced in New Zealand & Australia. In agricultural circles and fisheries, it's known that the clean air and water, green pastures, and animal husbandry is at a higher level.

Our product is 100% pure... This means that you won't see any of the extra stuff that most supplement companies include to save time and money (stearates, silica, etc.).

Our product is 100% freeze-dried in contrast to the heat-processed varieties. This means that you get more of the heat-sensitive vitamins, minerals and co-factors that make organ meats so incredibly nourishing.

There has never been a case of mad cow disease in New Zealand or Australia. BSE (mad cow disease), scrapie and other known TSE’s do not occur in New Zealand or Australia. A national surveillance program is in place to provide comprehensive monitoring.

Intestines and Stomach

I have had intestine issues from Diverticulosis and IBS-D for many years. I started taking the Intestines and Stomach product and I am happy to say I have found relief. I started out taking one capsule before each meal and then increased to 2 capsules before each meal. I have been using this product for 1 month and I am happy to say I have not had any problems with loose stools or diarrhea any more. This product has been a life saver for me. Thank you so much!!

I can eat dairy!

I purchased the intestines to see if they would help my husband who suffered from a perforated bowel two years ago. He has a had to eliminate dairy and gluten and starch. I have a plethora of food sensitivities myself and my 6 year old has been dealing with heartburn and belly pain for a couple of months since over doing it on added fiber applesauce packets. So, we have all been using Beef Intestines for a couple of months. My husband has had to go very slow with them so his success has been limited BUT he has recently introduced raw dairy and it’s helping. My 6 year old is doing well with two capsules. She says it helps with her pain and heartburn. I’d say I’ve had the most noticeable results but I’ve been taking a full dose since almost the beginning. After 6 years avoiding dairy I’ve started introducing it into my diet. I have had heavy cream , a pinch of yogurt, and raw cows milk in the past week with minimal negative effects. That’s a BIG deal for me. Before, the tiniest bit of dairy made me feel POISONED. More than that caused congestion and major back pain. 5 years ago a teaspoon of raw butter left me with the nastiest cold for 3 weeks. I’m a little congested but that is nothing compared with debilitating pain from getting dairy on my skin. Just a few months ago I was really sensitive still. I think years of being careful has been helpful for healing but I think the Beef Intestines have really done some Healing! I’m hoping my husband can get more consistent and I may need to do something else for my child. Thank you, Ancestral Supplements

Traditional peoples, Native Americans and early ancestral healers believed that eating the organs from a healthy animal would strengthen and support the health of the corresponding organ of the individual. [1]

Our genome has evolved with the nourishment of like-supports-like nutrition dining since the beginning of time. Grass Fed Beef Intestines (w/ Tripe) is a whole food and dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine intestines and 100% pure bovine tripe containing powerful building blocks and biodirectors along with high amounts of collagen/gelatin, glutamine, B12 and selenium. Based on the concept of "like supports like," Grass Fed Beef Intestines (w/ Tripe) may nourish and support our own gut health.

Not all organs and glands are the same. Look for the highest quality bovine intestines and tripe... It should come from pasture-raised, Grass Fed and grass-finished animals that are hormone, pesticide and GMO-free. If considering a supplement, look for one that is ultra pure (without binders, fillers (or) flow agents) and look for the freeze-dried variety as these have been shown to optimally preserve nutritional factors, growth factors and co-factors.

FACT: There has never been a case of mad cow disease in New Zealand. BSE (mad cow disease), scrapie and other known TSE’s, do not occur in New Zealand. A national surveillance program is in place to provide comprehensive monitoring.

We care deeply about each and every aspect of our "seed to supplement" way of life... great love and gratitude goes out to the souls of our animal brethren, such beautiful creatures that were sacrificed so that we could be nourished.

Traditional peoples, Native Americans and early ancestral healers believed that eating the organs from a healthy animal would strengthen and support the health of the corresponding organ of the individual. For instance, the traditional way of treating a person with a weak heart was to feed the person the heart of a healthy animal. Similarly, eating the kidneys of a healthy animal was believed to nourish urinary ailments, boost vitality and support overall kidney health... Pancreas was fed to people with digestive and endocrine problems... spleen was fed to people with immune and blood deficiencies...1 intestines, stomach (tripe) and other gelatinous parts provided concentrated amounts of connective tissue, gelatin / collagen, probiotics and other gut-specific proteins that are now absent from the modern diet.

Dr. Royal Lee, and other early nutritional pioneers, believed the degenerative processes of a specific organ / gland could be reversed by ingesting the corresponding raw materials specific to that organ / gland.10

Whether from Grass Fed beef, bison, or lamb, grass fed liver is one of the most nutrient-dense, health-promoting foods you could possibly eat. Hunters all over the world, for uncounted thousands of years, would eat the raw livers of the animals they killed. Lions and other predatory animals will also eat the liver first. Grass fed liver is particularly rich in vitamin B12, vitamin A, choline, folate and and many other powerful nutrients that most people are deficient in. Grass fed liver also contains compounds that help the human liver function better. Other substances in liver reduce fatigue, improve digestive health and support brain function.1

Many people look to targeted support "like heals like" while neglecting the very fundamental nourishment that governs our biology, health and well-being. It's no wonder that so many people successfully support organ and glandular-related health conditions (thyroid, adrenal and gut included) by just nourishing their bodies with the fundamentals — Liver and Bone Marrow.

Organs and glandulars were a staple of our early ancestors' diets as the ultimate superfood, for good reason. It turns out, this nourishing tradition is backed by science... "Radioisotope labeling studies in animals have shown conclusively that, when eaten, organs and glands selectively travel to the corresponding organs and glands in high concentrations. This research, done at the University of Scotland in Edinburgh, lends credence to the ancient practice of eating animal organs to help ensure health in one’s corresponding organs..." - Dr. Ron Schmid, ND.11 Our early ancestors knew this, which is why their traditional diets included the frequent and nourishing consumption of like-supports-like nutrients.

  • Based on the ancient ancestral wisdom that "like supports like." Consuming intestines and tripe may nourish and support our own gut health.
  • Provides all the building blocks... gut-specific proteins, peptides, enzymes & cofactors along with molecular biodirectors (DNA instructions) to code and/or express the building of healthy tissue.
  • Vitality... rich in glandular derived gelatin, glutamine, probiotics, B12 and selenium to support gut health, energy, thyroid and immune health.

Manufactured In The USA: ANCESTRAL SUPPLEMENTS, LLC

FDA Statement: These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Our Grass Fed Beef Intestines (w/ Tripe) is a whole food dietary supplement that provides 100% pure bovine intestines with 100% pure bovine tripe. This supplement can be taken with (or) without food (even though it technically is food). The suggested use is 6 capsules a day or as directed by a healthcare professional — for added support, the dose can be doubled. If consuming more than six capsules at once, the doses should be separated by at least three hours to improve tolerability.

Most customers tolerate our supplements without incident; however, approximately 5 to 10% of customers (usually with an autoimmune condition) may experience a detoxification reaction. Detoxification reactions go by many different names including healing reactions, healing crises, cleansing reactions (or) Herxheimer reactions with hallmark symptoms of nausea, headache, lethargy, dizziness and other flu like symptoms. In this instance, detoxification reactions are generally an indication that detoxification pathways in the body are back online... cells suddenly have an opportunity to release an even greater than normal quantity of stored toxins, metabolic wastes, pathogens and unwanted material.

A detoxification reaction is more likely to occur when starting with the full suggested serving size of 6 capsules per day. If you know that you are sensitive to supplements and/or you have an autoimmune condition, you may wish to start slow when adding this product to your current regimen. Tolerability can be greatly improved by starting with just 1 (or) 2 capsules a day and increasing by just 1 capsule every couple of days — this method may take a full two weeks to achieve the desired serving size of 6 capsules per day.

For customers that are highly sensitive to supplements and/or have an autoimmune and/or methylation SNPs, I suggest that you "play it safe" by introducing just one new capsule per week. In other words, just 1 capsule during the 1st week... 2 capsules during the 2nd week... 3 capsules during the 3rd week and so on... yes, this will take some time to reach the suggested dosages but this greatly helps to ensure tolerability of this deep nourishment so that it has a chance to do good (all those gut health and digestion benefits).

If you're going to pick just one ancestral supplement to start with, make it our GRASS FED BEEF LIVER... unless you need targeted support with another specific organ system (see below). If you are going to pick two supplements, our GRASS FED BEEF LIVER and our GRASS FED BEEF ORGANS provide complementary and synergistic nourishment. If you can add a third supplement, GRASS FED BONE MARROW fills fat soluble nutrition gaps and provides the fat soluble activators that nutrition giant Dr. Weston Price extensively wrote about.

  • Grass Fed Beef Liver
  • Grass Fed Beef Organs (liver, heart, kidney, pancreas, spleen)
  • Grass Fed Bone Marrow


On the other hand, if you're looking for targeted organ support, you may be interested in our GRASS FED BEEF HEART to support heart health (or) our GRASS FED THYROID to support a struggling thyroid (or) our GRASS FED SPLEEN to support spleen and immune health ... you get the picture. We have a like-for-like nutrition product line that can be found on our "Products" page. If you can't find what you're looking for (or) you're not sure what you're looking for, send us an email and we'll do everything we can to help.

New Zealand & Australia seem like they were made for raising healthy animals. Their location and climate produce pristine conditions for cattle and sheep, and the farmers have uncanny expertise handed down for generations. New Zealand is unique among meat-producing regions in the world because its climate is moderate so the grass in the pastures grows fresh and grows green year-round which means the cows and sheep can eat the food that’s healthiest for them every day of the year.

Our like-supports-like nutrition product line is always from Grass Fed, inspected animals born and raised without the use of pesticides, hormones or antibiotics. Health of livestock used for manufacturing in New Zealand & Australia is closely monitored by a world-leading biosecurity system that is second to none, and is a global exemplar. Strict government licensing, auditing and certification procedures mean that our genuine New Zealand freeze-dried products can be used with complete confidence in their origin, safety and efficacy. Freeze-drying preserves the heat-sensitive vitamins, minerals and co-factors of components leaving the nutrients in the same balance as found in nature.

Our product line is 100% additive-free. Absolutely no stearates, lubricants, binders, fillers or flow agents... except with our Bone Marrow (see Other Ingredients).

Okay, you're convinced! You're going to start incorporating like-supports-like nourishment in your routine because, well... you're educated now... you understand, just as our early ancestors did, that they provide superlative health benefits that are missing in our modern diets. The next step is sourcing it. It's important that you source the highest quality because not all organs, glands and cartilage are created equal. Consider the source.

  • Should Come from An Unpolluted Geographical Region — Isolated, Healthy, Pristine Lands
  • Should Come from Pasture Raised Animals
  • Should Come from Grass Fed & Grass-Finished Animals
  • Should Come from Animals That Are Hormone, Pesticide & GMO-free
  • Should Also Be Ultra-Pure... Absolutely No Fillers (or) Flow Agents, No Allergens
  • Should Be Non-Defatted
  • Should Be 100% Freeze-dried... Freeze Drying Preserves Heat-sensitive Biological Activity.

Many gut and digestive issues have a deficiency characteristic such as low stomach acid (80% of Americans), low pancreatic enzymes, low bile and/or low liver function. I'm not saying that all do, just a lot!

  • Low Acid — Restrict liquids with meals... most Americans actually have LOW stomach acid so stop diluting it with water during dinner... if that's you, also consider adding Betaine HCL and/or Apple Cider Vinegar to produce adequate stomach acid to get the job done right (go here to learn more). A ketogenic / paleo / primal diet can help address the root cause.
  • Low Enzymes — Consider eating pancreas or supplementing with pancreatic enzymes to help... a struggling thyroid, heavy metal exposure and pancreatic insufficiency can all suppress enzymes. A ketogenic / paleo / primal diet can help address the root cause.
  • Low Bile — Our early ancestors used bile from the gallbladder... it was sprinkled on the meat and used as a condiment as we might use mustard today. Word has it that bile did a lot for the taste of liver. If you can't do this, consider supplementing with ox bile. A ketogenic / paleo / primal diet can help address the root cause.
  • Low Liver — Most Americans have a non-alcoholic fatty liver that causes a sluggish liver and sluggish bile... supporting your own liver health with lots of choline from egg yolks and eating grass fed liver will do wonders. A ketogenic / paleo / primal diet can help address the root cause.


By now you know the theme... a standard, low-ish carb ketogenic / paleo / primal diet can fix most of these issues over time. For serious gut and digestive issues, a high fat, moderate protein, lowish-carb ketogenic / paleo / primal diet can be remarkably therapeutic (see below). Ketosis is a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate way of eating. Have a look at what I eat but be careful with too much protein as this can kick you out of ketosis.

Typical Keto — 75% healthy fats, 20% protein and 5% carbohydrates.

Our typical 1st meal is a delicious shake and it looks like this...

  • Wallaby Organic / Grass fed yogurt (2 cups or 150g)
  • NOW Brand MCT oil (1-2 tablespoons; up to 30g- dose to tolerability). NOTE: MCT always produces elevated ketones.
  • Organic raw virgin coconut oil or organic ghee (2 to 3 tablespoons or 30 to 45g)
  • Organic almond butter (2 tablespoons or 30g)
  • Organic unrefined red palm oil (1 tablespoon or 15g)
  • Grass Fed Ancestral Collagen / Gelatin (10-20g)
  • Himalayan sea salt -- 1/4 tsp (2 to 3g)
  • Organic cinnamon -- 2g
  • Organic instant coffee -- 2g (only when seeking variety)
  • Organic / Grass Fed vanilla protein powder (1 scoop) — I like Bluebonnet Grass Fed Protein
  • Organic banana (optional when not doing strict keto or if sleep if affected by too low carb consumption)
  • Organic / Pasture raised raw eggs (4 to 6 large eggs)
  • Organic raw pastured-raised milk (1 cup or 150g)... raw is best but Whole Kalona Brand Milk is a good second option if you don't do raw milk. If you don't tolerate milk, find an alternative.


This shake takes me a whopping 15 minutes to make... It's super convenient... and, it's downright delicious. If I don't make a shake, I will have a bunch of pasture-raised eggs (8 or so) that are smothered in a massive amount of butter topped with crunchy sea salt, a side of avocado, nitrate-free, sugar-free bacon and a dollop of homemade sour cream. Are you kidding me... don't even try to tell me that your current breakfast is better in taste nor in health.

Our typical second meal is mostly cooked... It's hot... It's better than any restaurant food... It looks like this...

  • Homemade Bone Soup (simmered for two to three days with tons of marrow)
  • Serving or Kimchi
  • Organic Avocado (optional: top with fish eggs, lemon juice and sea salt)
  • Grass fed butter or Ghee (2 tablespoons)
  • Salad of dark leafy greens (when in season) w/ 2 tablespoons of organic, fresh pressed olive oil and sea salt (I get mine from Apollo Olive Oil)
  • Grass fed organs (6 - 9 oz of various animals, various organs)
  • Organic almond butter (2 tablespoons) mixed with organic raw coconut oil (2 tablespoons)
  • Organic banana with raw local honey (optional: when not doing strict keto or if sleep or gut if affected by too low carb consumption)
  • 100% Cacao block for dessert


We generally carb reload on the weekends with plenty of sweet potatoes, raw local honey, the occasional sorghum and various in-season fruits. For gut / digestive repair, I don't suggest massive refeeds like we do... stay the course until you're better, then you can do this. We also do a twenty-four to thirty hour fast on Sundays... it's not as bad as it sounds. We eat an early dinner as we normally would on early Saturday evening... skip our first meal on Sunday, and eat an amazing fish-based dinner (usually wild caught sardines with wild caught fish eggs) with the entire tribe on Sunday. Once a quarter, we do a 5-day water only fast (adults only).

  • Magnesium... transdermal magnesium oil applied to feet before bed and oral magnesium.
  • Vitamin D3 - only when not able to get adequate sun exposure (nor) fish eggs


NOTE: About 75 percent of people with IBS have insufficient vitamin D, and about 70 percent see improvement when taking vitamin D 13

  • Vitamin K2 - only when not regularly eating my fermented veggies, sauerkraut, kimchi or natto
  • Grass Fed Beef Intestines (w/ Tripe)
  • Grass Fed Liver (or) Bovine Tracheal Cartilage (w/ Liver)
  • Grass Fed Bone Marrow
  • UVEX Glasses
  • Honorable Mentions For Targeted Support - may use Thymus or Spleen for allergies or to boost immune system...


Kidney for kidney and urinary support... Brain if the brain need a boost... Bovine Tracheal Cartilage to recover an injury or for intensive gut support... Thyroid in the winter when little to no carbs are available... Adrenal if adrenal support is required... you get the picture.

Keep in mind that my tribe and I eat a very nutrient-dense diet. We consume the whole animal just as our ancestors did... That's right, we eat the liver, kidney, pancreas, spleen, heart, thymus, bones, tendons, ligaments and more... and we eat this way every day (except on vacation we take extra Liver, Beef Organs and Bone Marrow supplements). We love our bone broth (this is my wife's specialty), and we eat tons of pastured eggs. Wife is awesome enough to sprout chickpeas for us. Then, she turns half of the batch into the best homemade hummus in the world. Super high in folate (NOT SYNTHETIC FOLIC ACID, big diff)!!

You never know, ancestral eating patterns (i.e. cycling back and forth between paleo, ketosis and fasting) could easily be the missing link to the energy, mood, memory and mental performance benefits that we are all after. This is how our early ancestors ate. Start eating like this to build your biological resilience.

If you'd like to know exactly how my tribe and I live to support optimal health, go to our "About Us" page and read the entire page.

Certainly, not all organisms survive after being harvested, ground and freeze-dried... but some do! And yes, the longer the tripe is frozen, the more of them die off. And since many of these organisms are actually dependent on each other for survival by utilizing each other’s byproducts, the deaths cause a chain reaction and results in the death of more and more organisms. The take-home message here is that our DNA evolved with this stuff... our early ancestors consumed intestines and stomach straight out of the carcass and we got our fair share of microbes from using these as cooking vessels too — some do survive!

There are all sorts of different types of microbes in the rumen, such as fungi, bacteria and single-celled eukaryotic organisms called protozoans. There are also some archaea, which are ancient microorganisms that live and survive in extreme cold and extreme heat environments.

If you need a good probiotic, you'd be better off doing what our tribe does... eat your fermented veggies like kimchi, sauerkraut or try some natto. If you need targeted support for gut health that's rich in gut-specific building blocks, collagen/gelatin, glutamine with some organ-derived probiotics, then our Grass Fed Beef Intestines (w/ Tripe) sounds like the perfect match!

The second stomach was washed well and eaten raw, but certain parts were usually boiled or roasted and the rest dried. “Another delicacy is at the very end of the intestines—the last part of the colon. You wash this real good and tie one end shut. Then you stuff the piece with dried berries and a little water and you tie the other end shut. You boil this all day, until it is really tender and you have a Blackfoot Pudding.”

Samuel Hearne, an explorer writing in 1768, describes the preparation of caribou:

“Of all the dishes cooked by the Indians, a beeatee, as it is called in their language, is certainly the most delicious that can be prepared from caribou only, without any other ingredient. It is a kind of haggis, made with the blood, a good quantity of fat shred small, some of the tenderest of the flesh, together with the heart and lungs cut, or more commonly torn into small shivers; all of which is put into the stomach and toasted by being suspended before the fire on a string. . . . it is certainly a most delicious morsel, even without pepper, salt or any other seasoning.”— www.westonaprice.org
